Our Village

The village of Thurston which has a population of 4,000, is situated 4 miles east of Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk just north of the A14.

Children's education is well catered for: there is a pre-school, primary school and community college in the village itself.

Thurston has a wealth of leisure opportunities with many organised clubs, groups and activities for all ages.

The New Green Community Centre, the Cavendish village hall, the library, as well as open spaces and sports facilities, are well used village assets.

There are over seventy businesses in the village, mostly small in scale.

Two church groups in the village, the Parish church of St. Peter and the Forge Community church are active in the community.

Above all Thurston is a friendly, well served community in a safe and attractive environment for individuals and families to thrive in.
